Yes it’s Halloween folks and while I haven’t seen any spectres a-haunting, or witches a-cackling, or even a stray zombie a-shuffling, I did get the chance to watch The Big Bang Theory‘s marking of this spooky festival, “The Holographic Excitation”. All the cast members got a chance to strut their Continue Reading
Check in: “The Walking Dead” / “The New Normal”
It might seem odd, even for an ecumenical pop culture-obsessed blogger like myself, to do a joint review of two completely disparate shows. But with both of these wildly different shows reaching the third episodes of their current seasons (for the The Walking Dead, it’s third and for The New Continue Reading
Joss Whedon endorses Zomney for President
Yes folks you read that right. Zomney. In a less than subtle dig at the economic and social policies of the Republicans’ anointed candidate for US President, pop culture maestro, Joss Whedon, who has given the world Firefly and The Avengers movie, has nominated Mitt Romney as the man Continue Reading
Behind the scenes photos of “Warehouse 13”
Warehouse 13, which screens on the syfy channel in the USA, is a show that I have loved since the first episode. Not all shows, especially ones that had to grow into themselves like Stargate SG1 and Fringe, attract that sort of loyal following from me from the start, Continue Reading
“Husbands” gets inked!
It’s Husbands Jim but not as we know it. Yes Cheeks and Brady, still married, still in love and still damn near hilarious, are back, but this time they’ve swapped their riotously colourful 3D world for the every bit as imaginative 2D world of the comics. In a series Continue Reading
Fun with the “The Walking Dead”
Hilarity is not something you generally associate with The Walking Dead, a show better known for its grim apocalyptic drama. But the talented Mike at seemikedraw.com.au has found a way and behold, it is funny indeed! Who knows? Perhaps this will inspire even the Walkers to chortle a little? Continue Reading
The stars of “Community” speak out!
As anyone whose familiar with this comedy gem will know, its home network in the USA, NBC, has played fast and loose with its airing dates, with fans never quite sure when, and sometimes, alarmingly, if the show, whose tagline is #sixseasonsandamovie on Twitter, would return. As I documented Continue Reading
More “Miranda” this Christmas … such fun!
In news that shivers of delight down my spine … bear with … bear with … Tom Ellis, who plays on-again, off-again love interest Gary for the titular Miranda (Miranda Hart) has declared to the world via Twitter that the third series of the hilarious sitcom will see the Continue Reading
First impressions: “666 Park Avenue”
666 Park Avenue is one seriously creepy show. And I mean that in a good way. The supernaturally-inclined drama, which is produced by David Wilcox (and loosely based on a novel of the same name by Gabriella Pierce; I am tempted to read them just to see how “loosely”) Continue Reading
“The Looney Tunes Show”
It is almost always a risky proposition dragging out a show from the pop culture vaults and trying to translate it into a concept that will work for modern audiences. For a start, while the show may live on in syndication on say Nick at Nite (ALF, Mork and Mindy, Continue Reading
